GBP current exchange rates


Can anyone tell me what the current exchange rate is in an exchange for GBP to USD.

Currently here in the UK, they are offering 1.47/1.48 ish!

Thanks for your help.

Have checked Google but wanted a word from the street!

On a recent trip to Poland, the rate in the UK was 4.3, in the exchange in Poland it was 4.85. Changing a thousand pounds in Poland rather than the UK made a massive difference.

Just wanted to know the realistic rate in NYC.

I might just use a debit card and see what the bank gives me.

Debit card is usually the more favourable way to go IMO.

If you don't bank with MetroBank then Debit card is NOT the way to go and will cost the OP up to £5 per $200 more than taking cash.

With a metrobank debit card you get the following


With other cards there will be 3% fee plus transaction charges.

Nationwide has launched a new current account, the FlexPlus where overseas cash withdrawls are free! The account does come with a fee, but has a lot of other perks too.
